Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0849325099, Hardcover)

This book provides professionals in the field of fluid dynamics with a comprehensive guide and resource. The book balances three traditional areas of fluid mechanics - theoretical, computational, and experimental - and expounds on basic science and engineering techniques.
Each chapter introduces a topic, discusses the primary issues related to this subject, outlines approaches taken by experts, and supplies references for further information.
Topics discussed include:
basic engineering fluid dynamics
classical fluid dynamics
turbulence modeling
reacting flows
multiphase flows
flow and porous media
high Reynolds number asymptotic theories
finite difference method
finite volume method
finite element method
spectral element methods for incompressible flows
experimental methods, such as hot-wire anemometry, laser-Doppler velocimetry, and flow visualization
applications, such as axial-flow compressor and fan aerodynamics, turbomachinery, airfoils and wings, atmospheric flows, and mesoscale oceanic flows
The text enables experts in particular areas to become familiar with useful information from outside their specialization, providing a broad reference for the significant areas within fluid dynamics.
